To detect early renal effects of occupational exposure to hexavalent chromium (Cr), urinary total proteins (U-TP), urinary albumin (U-Alb) and urinary retinolbinding protein (U-RBP) were determined in 166 male Cr platers and 106 male controls.
The mean employment time in Cr plating for the platers was 12.6 years.
Urinary Cr (U-Cr), which was determined as an index of Cr exposure, ranged from « not detected » to 19.91 mug/g creatinine in the platers.
The U-Cr level was lower than those in other previous studies.
Age-adjusted U-TP, U-Alb or U-RBP levels were not different between the platers and the controls.
